Antifa Flag Comes Directly From The German Communist Party In 1932

Everything theses Alt-Left thugs use today is exactly the same as back then. Their logo, weaponized words, double standards and lack of logic. Its all from Germany 85 years ago. They call everyone Nazis because that is who their opposition in Germany was. Antifa prefaced The National Socialist German Workers’ Party and empowered them. Without Antifa’s violence the Nazi party would have never won anything.

Antifaschistische Aktion

The first German movement to call itself Antifaschistische Aktion was proclaimed by the German Communist Party (KPD) in their newspaper Rote Fahne in 1932 and held its first rally in Berlin on 10 July 1932, then capital of the Weimar Republic. During the early 1930s amidst rising tensions between Nazis and the communists, Berlin in particular has been the site of regular and often very violent clashes between the two groups. In May 1932, the communist paramilitary organisation Rotfrontkämpferbund had been banned and, following a skirmish between Nazi and communist members in the parliament, the Antifaschistische Aktion was founded to ensure that the communists had still a militant wing to rival the paramilitary organisations of the Nazis. After the forced dissolution in the wake of the Machtergreifung in 1933, the movement was revived during the 1980s.

One of the biggest antifascist campaigns in Germany in recent years was the, ultimately successful, effort to block the annual Nazi-rallies in the east German city of Dresden in Saxony, which had grown into “Europe’s biggest gathering of Nazis”.

In October 2016, the Antifa in Dresden campaigned on the occasion of the anniversary of the reunification of Germany on 3 October for “turning Unity celebrations into a disaster” („Einheitsfeierlichkeiten zum Desaster machen“), to protest this display of new German nationalism, whilst explicitly not ruling out the use of violence.

The picture below is from the leftist run Wikipedia. This is the description under the picture on Wikipedia:
“Karl-Liebknecht-Haus, the KPD’s headquarters from 1926 to 1933. The KPD leaders were arrested by the Gestapo in this building in January 1933, when Hitler became Chancellor. The plaques on either side of the door recall the building’s history. Today it is the Berlin headquarters of the Left Party.”

An explanation of unusual symbols found on 10 national flags from around the world.

Enjoy!

Here are 10 unusual symbols found on national flags.

For the most part, the flags of the world’s nations are pretty straight forward – stripes, blocks of colors, and maybe a crest or an emblem here and there. That’s not true for all of them, though.

Here are 10 of the more unusual symbols some of them feature.

Number 10. Mozambique. Why yes, that is an AK-47 stretched over the book and star. It recalls the country’s struggle for independence and stresses the importance of defending one’s native land.

Number 9. Nepal. The red background signifying the color of Nepal’s official flower the rhododendron is but one of the things that makes the flag unique. It’s also the only national banner that’s neither rectangular nor square.

Number 8. Mexico. At its center is the Mexican Coat of Arms – an eagle that’s carrying a snake and perched atop a cactus. The image references the Aztec legend describing how and where the capital, Tenochtitlan, was founded.

Number 7. Falkland Islands. As a British territory, their flag features the Union Jack. To reflect their own cultural identity, however, they added a ram as a nod to their longstanding sheep farming industry.

Number 6. Saudi Arabia. While many flags contain text, no others have it so prominently placed. The Arabic script is a statement of faith and translates as “There is no god but God; Muhammad is the prophet of God.”

Number 5. Cyprus. A very literal representation of the country itself figures prominently, but the meaning of the olive branches beneath it is much more abstract. They symbolize the hope for peace between the communities hailing from Turkey and Greece

Number 4. Cambodia. The building depicted is Angkor Wat, a vast temple complex built in the early 11 hundreds. It’s the only architectural structure to be featured on any flag, and has been a part of Cambodia’s in one form or another since the 19th century.

Number 3. Grenada. Spices are an important part of the Caribbean nation’s economic present and future, and as such nutmeg, one of their most important crops, is represented on their flag.

Number 2. India. The wheel in the white stripe was added in the late 1940s, but its history goes much further back. It was first used in the 3rd century BCE by the Emperor Ashoka and represents law, progress, and righteousness.

Number 1. Lesotho. The hat featured is a style that’s expertly crafted and commonly worn in the area. It’s become a symbol of the nation’s people and their traditions.
